A Facebook post from the Barron County Sheriff's Department says the investigation is not related to Jayme Closs, the teen missing from Barron County.

"Praise the Lord", Allard said between sobs.

Sources tell FOX6 News Walworth County authorities are investigating after two bodies were found on a property near Woodfield Court and Highway J in East Troy.

When police arrived they saw the door was kicked in and found Jayme's parents, 56-year-old James and 46-year-old Denise, dead inside with gunshot wounds.

A post on the group late on Thursday read: "We know that emotions are running high with this fabulous news. We are also hopeful for the safe return of their daughter, Jayme, and are keeping her and the Closs family in our thoughts".

Investigators believe Jayme was abducted October 15, 2018, before dawn after her parents, James and Denise Closs, aged 56 and 46, were gunned down in their home in Barron.

The phone at the Douglas County Sheriff's Office rang unanswered on Thursday night and Sheriff Thomas Dalbec did not immediately respond to an email.

Closs, 13, had been missing for months after her parents were murdered inside their home back in October.

The Barron County sheriff's office plans to hold a news conference Friday morning to discuss the case.

Since then, detectives pursued thousands of tips, watched dozens of surveillance videos and spent countless hours searching for the teenager.

A suspect in the case has also been taken into custody. I can't wait to get my arms around her.

Fitzgerald, however, said at a press conference in October: 'I'm telling you - Jayme is missing and endangered'.

In the weeks after Jayme's disappearance, local law enforcement said they were working under the assumption she was still alive and endangered. He says knowing she's been found is "unbelievable". "I figured if they hadn't found her by now that the person who did this didn't want her dead, so I had hope". She asks people to continue to pray for "Jayme's well-being and our families healing". "It's like taking a big black cloud in the sky and getting rid of it and the sun comes out again".

Both Jayme and Denise have been described as quiet, kind, religious and giving, an example of how a loving mom raised her daughter with her own good values.
